I show you how to use UV dye in the refrigerant so that you can spot where the leak is and fix the problem. The R134a refrigerant system should be a sealed system with no leaks, but in this case the air conditioning compressor was leaking.

    Clearanceman2 2 года назад Yeah Chris Fix is very clear and to the point and is not afraid to tackle jobs a home mechanic can do but might have trouble finding clear written instruction for. Some of the service manuals assume more professional knowledge and they still aren't the same as seeing it on a video.

    Yc 530 Год назад ChrisFix I have a 14 silverado that blows hot but the shop can’t find the leak, they dyed it and all components under hood are fine and last thing to check is ac evaporator core but is really expensive just to check because is under dash. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Please!

    andrew ysk 7 месяцев назад hii Chris, do you have a video on self evaporator core cleaning ? my air con in avensis t27.. only 3 years old.. and whenever i turn on the air con, it has got some funky smell to it. i suspect that's should be the mold and spore and nasty stuff that blows out. i do not have knowledge to how the thing works in car.. the blower sucks in air , then it goes thru heater fins then cooling fins (evaporator) or the other way round ? is the heater fins always hot ? as long as engine coolant is hot. or it has a valve to control the intake of hot water from coolant system ? as for cooling fins.. it can be engage (on) or disengage . so evaporator is actually the very same thing of air conditioner ? thanks andrew

    Lawrence Mudge 3 года назад C/F. I have to tell you, I think you have one of the dopest channels on youtube. It might be a toss up between yours and kipkay, but I have to say, since they are both about different fields, you certainly take the cake for coolest, most organized, most informative, most helpful, most creative, most interesting, and most money saving car related help I have ever seen. Good job man!

    Terence Molloy 3 года назад I've been doing my own repairs ever since I was 16 years old had 6 motor bikes then progressed to cars when reaching 17 and got my drivers license, It was always a suck it and see situation, only way to learn, in my 70s now So the motivation is sadly lacking, but I do enjoy these little videos from you guys, so I'd just like to say thanks for posting them and giving your time to show how things can be done, knowledge is a wonderful thing, cars are quite complicated nowadays, all computer driven. More sensors than the shuttle, anything goes wrong call the computer guy, even my auto box has 2 sensors, one goes wrong, got to change the box, the wonders of modern cars, regards,
